Bit rude of NT to just drop that on the organiser without warning. BE also messed up a lot of venues recently by removing International status from them. Hambledon is not going to run any more a great pity as it was always very well supported. I wonder who is going to step in and replace it at what is event planning very short notice.
Very sad but I do understand the reasons behind the decision I think given the importance of the event the NT could have given more notice .
BE will have to chuck some money at another venue with blessed going .
Its a shame, i really enjoyed Belton on the two occasions that ive been. It also sounds like it was badly handled by the NT. i appreciate their reasons, although didnt see any signs of damage to the land when i went. I did go on good years weather wise though.
